The Projectionist

The Projectionist captures a day-in-the-life of 27-year old projectionist, Mike Rice. As visuals of magenta and tungsten fill the frame, Mike's narration begins by delving into the beginning of his film aspirations, but goes on to a wider picture, elucidating the role of the projectionist in cinema - a thankless, but nonetheless essential role in the "creation of the magic" of movies. But throughout we circle back to the most pressing question: will the death of analogue film be the end of projection? Although he believes the two are inexorably linked, he offers a sense of hope: as long as movies are still made with pride, there will still be people who want to project and watch it that way too.
